THE SEAMAN THAT I NEVER WAS

The seaman that I never was,
is traveling forever,
although I feel to him so close,
I have not been too clever.

I thought that there should be a link,
to have a double existence,
but I have missed it in a blink,
due to my single persistence.

The seaman that I never was,
lives in another solid place,
perhaps in sketches by old Boz,
caricature his funny face.

The mystery of Edwin Drood,
is that I never read it,
in sinful passion as I stood,
where angels fear to tread it.

The mayor of Casterbridge,
is but a mild and honest case,
for putting feelings in the fridge,
of my inferior fallen race.

The seaman that I never was,
more honest sort of man than I,
he’s my poor truth and that’s because,
I am his richest untold lie.
